The mother of the Louisiana State University student who died following an apparent hazing incident at a fraternity said she believes her son was murdered, telling ABC News, “Nobody can physically drink that much, you can’t, you have to be forced.”

“This shouldn’t have happened,” Rae Ann Gruver said in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Amy Robach three months after her son, Max Gruver, 18, died following a night of drinking and alleged hazing at the Phi Delta Theta fraternity’s LSU chapter.
